    • Cytokine biomarkers in tear film for primary open-angle glaucoma. 

      Gupta, Divakar; Huebner, JL; Kraus, Virginia Byers; Stinnett, Sandra S; Tseng, HC; Walsh, M; Wen, JC (Clin Ophthalmol, 2017)
      PURPOSE: To determine the utility of tear film cytokines as biomarkers for early primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS: Patients without POAG and eye drop-naïve patients with newly diagnosed POAG were recruited from ...
    • Delayed Correction of Hypotony Maculopathy in a Patient with Glaucoma and Thyroid-Related Orbitopathy. 

      Francis, CE; Gupta, Divakar; Slabaugh, M (Case Rep Ophthalmol, 2015-09)
      Hypotony maculopathy is a condition that may result in visual deterioration from choroidal folds or optic disc edema. Optic disc edema can result from altered translaminar pressure gradients (lowered intraocular pressure, ...
    • Differential Expression of Coding and Long Noncoding RNAs in Keratoconus-Affected Corneas. 

      Aboobakar, Inas F; Allingham, Robert Rand; Bykhovskaya, Yelena; Drewry, Michelle D; Estes, Amy; Gao, X Raymond; Hauser, Michael A; ... (14 authors) (Investigative ophthalmology & visual science, 2018-06)
      Keratoconus (KC) is the most common corneal ectasia. We aimed to determine the differential expression of coding and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in human corneas affected with KC.From the corneas of 10 KC patients and ...
    • Finding the best glaucoma questionnaire: a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of glaucoma knowledge assessments. 

      Muir, Kelly W; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann (Clin Ophthalmol, 2015)
      OBJECTIVE: The goal of the study was to determine which glaucoma quiz provides the best information about patient glaucoma knowledge to clinicians in clinical practice settings. METHODS: Four glaucoma quizzes were identified ...
    • Health coaching for glaucoma care: a pilot study using mixed methods. 

      Muir, Kelly W; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann; Schneider, S; Vin, A (Clin Ophthalmol, 2015)
      INTRODUCTION: Adherence to glaucoma medications is essential for successful treatment of the disease but is complex and difficult for many of our patients. Health coaching has been used successfully in the treatment of other ...
    • In vitro fluid dynamics of the Ahmed glaucoma valve modified with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene. 

      Ahmad, S; Allingham, Robert Rand; Asrani, S; DeCroos, FC; Klitzman, Bruce; Kondo, Y; Lee, MR; ... (9 authors) (Curr Eye Res, 2011-02)
      PURPOSE: Long-term intraocular pressure reduction by glaucoma drainage devices (GDDs) is often limited by the fibrotic capsule that forms around them. Prior work demonstrates that modifying a GDD with a porous membrane promotes ...
    • Optic Disc Perfusion in Primary Open Angle and Normal Tension Glaucoma Eyes Using Optical Coherence Tomography-Based Microangiography. 

      Bojikian, KD; Chen, C-L; Chen, PP; Gupta, Divakar; Johnstone, MA; Mudumbai, RC; Wang, RK; ... (10 authors) (PLoS One, 2016)
      PURPOSE: To investigate optic disc perfusion differences in normal, primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and normal tension glaucoma (NTG) eyes using optical microangiography (OMAG) based optical coherence tomography (OCT) ...
    • Patient education preferences in ophthalmic care. 

      Muir, Kelly W; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann; Stinnett, Sandra S; Swamy, L (Patient Prefer Adherence, 2014)
      BACKGROUND: The learning preferences of ophthalmology patients were examined. METHODS: Results from a voluntary survey of ophthalmology patients were analyzed for education preferences and for correlation with race, age, ...
    • Readability of patient education materials in ophthalmology: a single-institution study and systematic review. 

      Muir, Kelly W; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann; Williams, AM (BMC Ophthalmol, 2016-08-03)
      BACKGROUND: Patient education materials should be written at a level that is understandable for patients with low health literacy. The aims of this study are (1) to review the literature on readability of ophthalmic patient ...
    • Stress and burnout in residents: impact of mindfulness-based resilience training. 

      Goldhagen, BE; Kingsolver, K; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann; Stinnett, Sandra S (Adv Med Educ Pract, 2015)
      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Stress and burnout impact resident physicians. This prospective study tests the hypothesis that a mindfulness-based resilience intervention would decrease stress and burnout in residents. METHODS: ...
    • Validation of a glaucoma knowledge assessment in glaucoma patients. 

      Rao, VS; Peralta, EA; Rosdahl, Jullia Ann (Clin Ophthalmol, 2016)
      SUMMARY: To develop metrics to identify knowledge deficits and barriers to learning in glaucoma patients, this study seeks to validate a glaucoma knowledge assessment to use in the evaluation of knowledge in glaucoma patients. ...
    • Visual Crowding in Glaucoma. 

      Medeiros, Felipe; Ogata, Nara G; Boer, Erwin R; Daga, Fábio B; Jammal, Alessandro A; Stringham, James M (Investigative ophthalmology & visual science, 2019-02)
      Purpose:Crowding refers to the phenomenon in which objects that can be recognized when viewed in isolation are unrecognizable in clutter. Crowding sets a fundamental limit to the capabilities of the peripheral vision and ...
